Delayed Snooze

Isn't it bedtime yet, Hu-Dad?
Isn’t it bedtime yet, Hu-Dad?

Hu-Dad is scrambling with last minute preparations for his book launch, so he ended up spending a few hours in his study Friday evening. Uh, Hu-Dad, that’s great but you are messing with our bedtimes.

I can't keep my eyes open any longer.

Landon claimed the coveted crate in the study and was busy snoring away—until Hu-Dad stuck a camera in and captured the following photograph. And, yes, that is Boom’s giant fluffy tail in the photo.

Your delayed snooze doesn't have to be my lack of napping.
